I'm no expert on the matter, but the brits seem to have a lot of weird terms for money. Farthings, pence, pounds quid, sterling, shillings.

CFB, what is a henway?

Yep, sams rotisserie chickens are a regular staple around here. Not the pidgeons they sell in the supermarkets either...

Re: What's a professor earn?

The Chronicle article is the best place to find this info, but it's for members only (passworded). From the article:

"The overall average salary for professors was $70,333. Full professors at private doctoral universities make the most, on average: $131,292. Assistant professors at community colleges earn an average of $47,046. The data come from a survey of more than 1,400 institutions."

It really depends on the discipline. Most profs in the business school I work at easily make 6 figures. Tenure track can start 6 figures, but now we're hiring "clinical faculty" which are full time teaching, non tenure track. Finance and accounting are going to make more than management and marketing (I'm guessing). My friends in the school of education are starting at mid 40s as Assistant Profs.

Re: What's a professor earn?

The Computer Research Association publishes an annual survey of Computer Science professor salaries. The 2004 -2005 survey is here:

http://www.cra.org/CRN/articles/may0...es.27to34.html

Here is a recent survey

http://www.cra.org/wp/index.php?p=84

that says the median time to complete a PhD in Computer Sicence is 7.8 years and the median age of people getting their PhD in Computer Science is 32.5 years.

Your supermarket isnt around here!

The supermarket broiled chickens here are about the size of my fist...I've seen some bigger cornish game hens that could kick the crap out of these chickens in a fair fight!

Were you comparing superwalmart rotisserie chickens vs. sams club chickens? I've never tried the superwalmart version, but they looked about 4 lbs - similar to the sams club chickens in size.

Re: What's a professor earn?

Huh. Not here. I'll have to try to take a couple of pictures.

The sams chickens are huge...about the largest chicken I've seen. We get four meals out of them, minimum. All our supermarket chickens, including walmarts, look like a softball with legs. Maybe one good meal. Same price for all of them at every market and at sams, about five bucks.

Re: What's a professor earn?

$4.95. Aside from the $1.50 hotdog with a drink, one of the best food bargains around.

Its about 75c-1.00 more than buying the chicken yourself and cooking it at home, which makes that whole mess not worth cleaning up.

I was thinking about grabbing one today or tomorrow...I'll post a photo.

And then try to think about how to tie all this back to how much a professor earns. Although every time I read that title "how much does a henway?" still pops into my head.

Re: What's a professor earn?

Yum, that was good. About 3lbs, $4.88. Between the three of us eating just chicken and a salad, we didnt even eat half. Says its rubbed with Lawry's seasoning, and then rotisseried.

Oh yeah...that above mentioned professor could buy 13,871 of these per year, before taxes.

Not necessarily. In most universities, professors of medicine receive very little, maybe even nothing, from the university (except the benefit package); their earnings come predominantly from patient care. In fact, in many cases, the university claws back a percentage of the clinical income, so the university actually makes money from them. I am not making this up. This is my situation. The big picture is: my total income is just fine, thank you, but the problem is that this arrangement devalues my academic activities and limits the amount of time I can spend on them. It also means I, like my colleagues, work 75-80 hours per week.
